Using the standalone-installers 64bit on a windows 10 64bit pro machine: various 2.99 version including the latest 2.99 build #8 worked well with the project global_connections from the book QGIS Map Design written by Anita Grasser and Gretchen Peterson. enter image description here After deinstalling 2.99 and installing the version 3.00 build #3 standalone the same project crashes: enter image description here

questions: 1) can anyone confirm this behaviour? 2) how is this possible? addendum for underdark: without the labels it works fine: enter image description here


This is the most annoying issue I've come up against in QGIS so far. It's reported here: https://issues.qgis.org/issues/14752 and it seems that it always surfaces in the release versions, while dev versions are fine.

Can you confirm that deactivating "Discourage labels from covering features" fixes the crash?

  • yes, without the labels no crash , please see updated post with new picture. – Kurt Feb 26 '18 at 19:48
  • I did also post a bug-report , see issues.qgis.org/issues/18235, maybe a wizard can fix this ... – Kurt Feb 26 '18 at 19:52
  • Thank you for taking the time to write a report. In this case, the information should be added to the existing issue: issues.qgis.org/issues/14752 so that developers can see the full history and what has already been discussed. – underdark Feb 26 '18 at 19:59
